...I suffered through a frozen shoulder...she managed to cure a recurring flare up of my shoulder issue in two visits...
"I'm not one for hyperbole, but Thieny is a miracle worker.
I wish I knew of her practice as I suffered through a frozen shoulder, because she managed to cure a recurring flare up of my shoulder issue in two visits, whereas no practitioners of western medicine could do anything but prescribe pills and recommend surgery. The focus is holistic medicine, but Thieny is able to hone in on whatever ails you, and attack/treat it with absolute precision. You will leave a session not only healthier and in less pain, but also wiser. I'm way too preoccupied to write reviews these days, but Thieny is absolutely worth it :-)"

...has been exactly what I've needed throughout my prenatal experience and postnatal recovery...
"My experience with Thien Lake has been exactly what I've needed throughout my prenatal experience and postnatal recovery. I have always had lower back and shoulder issues and my pregnancy aggravated some of those parts of my body, and after giving birth, some of those aches have stuck around. Every visit with Thieny has allowed me to talk to her about my body, my current stresses/struggles and my general well-being. We start our sessions with Thieny reading my heart beat and tongue (Traditional Chinese Medicine uses the tongue as a sort of map of the body) and a conversation about how my body is feeling. Then Thieny suggests a focused treatment which may include Tui Na massage and stretching, cupping, accupressure, etc. I like how involved I am in deciding my treatment, I feel like I'm learning about my own health and treatment. The best part about a treatment with Thieny is how I feel after the hour or hour and 15 minute treatment: relaxed, rested and rejuvenated. I often can't wait to set my next appointment and look forward to it all month. Do yourself a favor: set an appointment today!"

...There is also something magically relaxing about the treatment and once I woke up feeling like I had the best sleep ever!..
"I have been going to Thien Lake for less than a year and I definitely feel improvements in the way my body feels and even in the way I move... I can say that it has helped relieve tension in my shoulders (i sit at a computer all day) and helped my lower back issues. There is also something magically relaxing about the treatment and once I woke up feeling like I had the best sleep ever! I've been getting body work/massages for years but there is something more intentional about working with Thieny because she is excellent at checking in and providing helpful feedback about how to improve my day-to-day habits that contribute to stress. I would totally recommend a session at Thien Lake if you're looking for beneficial treatment that serves the mind and body."

...I always walk out of her treatments on cloud nine!..
"Thieny has a very nurturing, calming and healing spirit which makes for a wonderful treatment. I have been coming to Thieny for joint/muscle pain and stress management for the past year or so and I feel so much more relaxed and pain/stress free. Besides the amazing tui na body work which is great for pain and stress management Thieny also offers acupressure and cupping treatments which are also excellent for overall body health. The acupressure is especially good for any joint or muscle pain. I always walk out of her treatments on cloud nine!" - D.C. via Yelp

...I always leave there feeling relaxed and confident knowing that she has my health in her best care...
"For someone who is sensitive to touch, Thieny has the magical hands. She has the formula to the right amount of applied pressure and gentleness. She checks in regularly to make sure you are always comfortable. Her bedside manners are great too! She is very warm, friendly, nurturing, calm -- and still keeps it professional. I always look forward to my treatments with her. She is consistent with follow-ups from the previous treatments, ensuring that there's always room for adjustments. I always leave there feeling relaxed and confident knowing that she has my health in her best care. Thank you for your healing hands."

...as well as being extremely warm and caring. Her healing approach is one of intentionality and thoroughness...
"This was my first experience of Tui Na and Thieny was truly amazing. She was informative and insightful, as well as being extremely warm and caring. Her healing approach is one of intentionality and thoroughness, and she makes sure you don't feel rushed, even once the session was over. She gave me really thoughtful and knowledgable suggestions regarding the energetic, emotional and physical nature of my body, framing it in a way that I had not recognized before and which I continue to find really insightful even as time goes on. Thank you so much Thieny - I hope to come back to Oakland to receive another session from you soon." -
